Bonnie Hemming, of Hackensack, has been a volunteer with Faith in Action for Cass County since July of 2008.
In her years of volunteering, Hemming has provided 116 hours of visits, homemaking, chores and rides, helping 22 of her neighbors in need.
“I love to help people,” she said in a news release. “I think (Faith in Action) does a beautiful job. So many people need rides and ramps.”
When asked about her favorite part of volunteering, Hemming said: “It’s all about meeting and getting to know people! And I have met a lot of great volunteers through Faith in Action.”
As a thank you, Hemming received a $20 gas card. In honor of its 20th anniversary, Faith in Action for Cass County is highlighting volunteers several times a month throughout 2021. Volunteers are celebrated and recognized for their services and awarded $20 gas cards and other prizes.
A locally supported, nonprofit organization, Faith in Action for Cass County coordinates volunteers who provide free nonmedical, neighborly assistance to seniors, the disabled and people in need throughout Cass County. Faith in Action volunteers help with transportation, friendly visiting, respite for caregivers, light homemaking and chores, and basic home repair, and they build accessibility ramps.
